Some phishing scams are so obvious that they’re almost laughable. A misspelled word here or there, atrocious grammar, outrageous claims of instant wealth, undue solicitation of credit card details – these are usually enough to identify a scammer’s attempt. However, when a scammer ups their game and actually spends some effort on making the scam believable, the only thing that a user has to fall back on is his computer and internet know-how. Without these two, vulnerable users can easily fall victim to phishing attacks, especially those similar to the ones currently making their rounds on the social networking scene.
